Millions still lack housing, electricity, water and proper toilets. The education system in the black townships lies in ruins.
Poor, uneducated blacks and wealthy, white liberals both believed that poverty and ignorance would be eradicated in, oh, I don't know, a year or so. The elimination of apartheid and the accession to power of black men would make it so.
But it takes generations to raise a nation into relative prosperity. And that's under the best of conditions. If they'd taken everything the whites owned, they'd still be in the same condition today.

"But it takes generations to raise a nation into relative prosperity." .... in addition to liberty, free markets, capitalism, an education, hard work, rugged individualism, and self reliance. OK, now I think it reads better.
